We booked the family room which had a double and twin beds. The beds were very clean and comfortable. The floors very very creaky and a bit crooked which made us laugh every time we walked around the room. Things would roll off the bedside cabinet which also made us laugh. The furniture was also on a bit of a... More

Was pleasantly surprised on arrival to be told that Late Rooms had quoted me the wrong price & my total bill would be £30 less for an ensuite double, nice touch as not all hotel staff would have been so honest. The room was clean & fairly basic but it was as expected. Beware if you are elderly or over... More

Stayed here for business. Like traditional inns and had one of the attic rooms. Twisty stairs and beams, etc all present and correct. Furnishings nothing special but all I needed was a comfy bed Good freshly cooked breakfast. Oh and very cheap too, bed an breakfast for less than I would normally pay for dinner when working away. Looks like... More

Convenient to the coast which is just a short walk away the Ship Inn is comfortable but with minimum services. There is no elevator and the stairs can be hard to navigate if you have large luggage. Other than this it was good value for money.

Arrived here to be greeted by "you must be" and my husband's name!! No welcome at all. Were told that we were too late for food -we knew that anyway and we had informed them of our late arrival well in advance. No info given and not even a smile. Taken to the room which was basic. I have never... More

Everywhere was clean and tidy, fixtures were a little worn, but to expected in a very reasonably priced Inn. Whilst not the owner's fault, a unseasonably cold May night made our room nippy - the only substantial thing I'd like improved was the warmth!

We booked at the last minute having found other places fully booked. We had a room at the top of the top which was clean and spacious. Towels were changed every day and bed made. No complaints about the breakfast or food in general. Staff were friendly and helpful. Not luxurious but clean, comfortable and very good value for money.... More

Breakfast was great, rooms great. Don't expect luxury...it is your typical English pub, in the country, type hotel. It even came with an interesting history. we walked across the road and checked out the beautiful old church and cemetery. We loved it! Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.!!!

We booked the Ship for a random night away in February, knowing it would be quiet and peaceful. Easy to find, on the main road through Dymchurch, with ample parking for the time of year. We were attracted by the reviews of hauntings and the age of the hotel. We were surprised to find when we walked in that at... More
